    # /onapp/onapp-cp-install/onapp-cp-install.sh --quick-update='monit rabbitmq'

Upgrade Static Compute Resources

  1. Make sure your compute resource is visible and online on the Control Panel.

  2. If you have CentOS 7 Xen resources, remove the centos-release-xen-46 package: 

    # rpm -e centos-release-xen-46
  3. Upgrade the OnApp compute resource installer package:

    # yum update onapp-hv-install
  4. Update the monit management package and run the configuration script:

    # yum update onapp-hv-monit
    # /onapp/onapp-monit/onapp-hv-monit.sh
